ChartsPedigree Chart - Samuel J Casey Sr
     Augusta Co VA was formed in 1738 from part of Orange Co and is located in the Shenandoah Valley on the western edge.It was originally a huge area but many parts were carved out to form new counties and several states. It is the 2nd largest county in the state.

     John Dowling , son of Robert Dowling and Sarah Guinn, was born in 1759 at Augusta Co, Virginia.1,4

     Originally a heavily wooded area, the settlement of what is now Darlington Co began after 1736 and 1737 when the province of South Carolina set aside a vast area of land for the Welsh Baptists of Delaware. This Welsh Tract bordered both sides of the Pee Dee River. For almost thirty years, settlers concentrated on the banks and small tributaries of the Pee Dee River. Local government did not exist for the citizens of the area. All deeds, estate settlements, and other legal matters had to be taken to Charles Town.
     Beginning in the 1760s, and continuing in the the 1770s, other groups made their way into present-day Darlington, and were granted lands on the Lynches River, Jeffries Creek, and a host of other water courses. These settlers included descendants of French Huguenots, Scots-Irish, and the English.
     In 1769, the Cheraws District was one of the new districts formed in South Carolina to replace the Anglican parishes.
     John Dowling served in Captain Laucher's St Marie's Company in 1st Regiment of South Carolina Infantry commanded by Col Charles Coatsworth Pinckney from Nov 1775 through 1780. In 1782 he was put in Benton Regiment Marion Brigade and took part in all activities of that Regiment..5
     Four and a half years after John's enlistment in Pickney's Regiment his name disappeared from its rolls. John's company, commanded by Levacher de Saint Marie, was possibly one of the American organizations defeated at Charleston. In any event, it was not until 1782 that his military service for this idea of self-government was again recorded. It was then that he is known to have been a guerilla with the dreaded 'Swamp-fox', Francis Marion..6

John Dowling married Nancy Boutwell, daughter of Burtonhead Boutwell II and Saoni woBurtonheadBoutwell, on 1783 at Jeffries Creek, Cheraws District, South Carolina; Sister-in-law Mary Boutwell Dowling had probably introduced him to the bride some years earlier, for this was Mary's sister Nancy. Both were daughters of Burtonhead Boutwell. Bride Nancy was twenty years of age, John was twenty-four. After his marriage, the remaining forty-three years of his life were to be spent near Jefferies Creek. This was the place that father Robert had brought him to from Virginia. And it was the place where all of John's little Dowlings would be born.1,6
     Dempsey Dowling , son of John Dowling and Nancy Boutwell, was born on December 14, 1783 at Jeffries Creek, Cheraws District, South Carolina. He was the first child. The name they gave him, Dempsey, must have been the surname of some family friend. Absolutely nothing is known of his childhood. (NOTE: Many sources list his birth as the Darlington District but if 1783 is currect year, the place should be listed as Cheraws District as Darlington Co was not formed until 1785.)7,6
     In 1785, the Cheraw District was divided into counties, Marlborough, Chesterfield, and Darlington counties.
     Elias G. Dowling , son of John Dowling and Nancy Boutwell, was born in 1787 at Jeffries Creek, Darlington Co Cheraws District, South Carolina.

In 1824, Elisha came to southeast Alabama to teachschool for a short period of time. He was fascinated with theterritory. After returning to SC, he convinced Lacy to marry him andreturn to Alabama. She married Elisha Matthews on Christmas eve,24 Dec 1824. This was only two days after the far off Alabamalegislature was proclaiming a new county 'to be called Dale'. Thefollowing month, Lacy left Jefferies Creek with husband Elisha and alarge caravan, composed primarily of his kinfolks. The destinationwas Dale Co AL where Lacy resided until her death. Elisha's father,Moses Matthews, Jr. was captain of the wagon-train. It is givenbut to few to attain the ---ge or to fill the measure of usefulnesswith which this departed mother of Israel was honored. The -rge andsorrowing concourse that attended her obsequies attested the esteem inwhich she was held by her neighbors and friends. In the funeralcortege were more than two hundred of her immediate relatives, and alarge number of her former slaves. Mrs. Mathews leaves surviving hernine children, forth-nine grandchildren and forty-five greatgrandchildren. The grief-stricken husband in his loneliness andbereavement has one incerest condolence. The companion of nearlysixty years, the sharer of his joys and sorrows, has ben takenfrom himand the light and happiness of his life has been removed. But theLord gave and the Lord hath taken away, and we doubt not our venerablefriend can say with christian resignation blessed be the name of theLord. (83.)

Father*Robert Dowling b. c 1700
Relationship6th great-grandfather of Sam Casey Jr
ChartsPedigree Chart - Samuel J Casey Sr
     Robert Dowling Robert Dowling was born in VA about 1730. The name of his first wifeis unknown. Grandson Dempsey Dowling did remember that she was of VAbirth. They had one son, William and his mother died in childbirth.

In 1754, Robert married a second time to Sarah Guinn. By 1773,something caused Robert and his family to leave VA. That is the datein SC that King George II's deputy-surveyor, John Bremar, Esquire,'Admeasured and laid out unto Robert Dowling a plantation or tract ofland containing 300 acres. It is on Boggy Gully, bounding on allsides on vacant land and hath such shape and marks as the above platrepresents.'

Robert's tract was cut through the middle by Bobby Gully branch, astream that can be seen on present-day Darlington Co SC maps. It isnot known where Robert and Sarah's home stood. Dempsey stated thathis grandfather's home was on Jeffires Creek, a larger stream twomiles east of Boggy Gully. By 1900 the site of Robert's old loghouseor that of one of his son's was faintly visible.

Robert's move to SC was five years after the first Methodist churchwas founded in America. His daughter-in-law is known to have joined aMethodist Church twenty-six years after this. With all the Dowlingemigrants from Ireland being Catholic, one wonders when and how Robertor his forebear was converted to Methodism. Did Bishop Francis Asburyaccomplish the task? If so, the job was done well, for three of thegrandsons became Methodist preachers.

Robert had no use of strong drink. The year after he arrived in SC,court records of the district in which he lived mention his complaintto the Grand Jury of a Joseph Gourly's drunkenness.

Shortly after the call to arms by America's revolutionists, Robertbecame a soldier. He chose to fight with the men of his home state.By May of 1777 he was enrolled as a private with Captain WiliamVause's Company of the 12th Virginia Regiment.
